There is one week left to nominate areas in the district for funding through the Mobile Black Spot Program.
Federal Member for Braddon Justine Keay urged Circular Head locals to get in touch to improve regional mobile phone coverage.
“In round four, the community is encouraged to identify black spots by contacting my office,” Ms Keay said.
“I will then make submissions to the Department of Communications.
“I know parts of Circular Head around Togari and Brittons Swamp have had concerns about mobile coverage. Now is the opportunity to get the ball rolling on fixing the coverage issues that have plagued these areas for so long.”
Nominating a black spot is the first step to gaining funding, says Ms Keay.
“Dairy processors like Fonterra and Saputo have advised that improved connectivity is becoming increasingly important for farmers.
“An ever increasing number of visitors to Circular Head are also looking for better mobile phone coverage.”
Nominations for the national database of black spot locations closes next Thursday (October 11).
